Iowa denizen Joe Price sings and plays old-time, rough-hewn, country blues with a nasty metal slide that makes his gee-tar ring. His guitar playing wife Vicki joins in and sings in a complementary fashion. The duo’s new CD Rain or Shine features lots of downright nasty licks and gut-thumping rhythms. They may not be doing anything that hasn’t been done before, but these musicians bring forth the blues in all its rural beauty. These six songs offer solid proof.
